Anson Henry & Märt Israel named to Canadian & Estonian Olympic teams

Former Washington State sprinter Anson Henry from Canada and former University of Washington discus thrower Märt Israel from Estonia have been named to their country's Olympic teams.

Henry, the Cougar school record holder in the 100, the 2002 Pac-10 champ at 100 & 200 meters, and a 2002 All-American in that event, will compete for Canada in the 100 meters and on their 4 x 100 meter relay team.

Israel, who competed for the University of Washington in the 2007 season, joins a formidable Estonian discus squad that includes reigning world champion Gerd Kanter and Aleksander Tammert.

Israel opted not to return to the UW for 2008, but instead elected to train in Estonia with Kanter.
